I actually make arroz con leche a few different ways, but this one that I saw on food networks 'Simply Delicioso' is the most different from others already posted to this site. I plan on trying it soon, and will adjust description accordingly. If anyone tries it before I do, please let me know what you think!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak the rice, cinnamon, zest and cloves in the water in a heavy saucepan for 1 hour.
  2. After soaking, bring the rice mixture to a boil over high heat. When it starts to boil, lower heat to medium and cook for 10 to 12 more minutes or until water is almost evaporated.
  3. While rice is cooking, beat the egg. Add the milk and stir well to mix. Add the egg mixture, vanilla and condensed milk to the rice and cook over medium-low heat, stirring carefully, until it thickens slightly or to desired consistency, about 25-35 minutes. Stir in raisins, if desired. I sometimes also like to add a bit of ground cinnamon. Let cool uncovered. The rice will thicken as it cools, but will be thinner than traditional rice pudding.
